Probably one of the better D'elf shows of 2003, this outdoor performance features a wonderful showcase for Brahim, as he debuts some new material and plays some beautiful oud melodies on a warm summer night. However, I long for the shredding of those Lizard Lounge versions of "Quilty" from 2001/2002, before he went to the west coast and stopped performing regularly with D'elf. Still, all of his "reunion" appearances are worth seeking out.
FWIW, there is a sideways reference to this show in the review of 7/7/03 contained in the new (second edition) The Phish Companion.
